Knit Poncho / Black Denim / Boots / Hat

I think I’ll forever have a thing for big chunky knits.  Season after season, I love them more and more.  I probably wear black pants and boots 5 out of 7 days a week in the Fall/Winter.  And then I just rotate my favorite oversized sweaters around so I don’t look like I am wearing the same thing everyday.  Sneaky right!?  ;)   I’ve rounded up some of my favorite (mostly chunky!) sweaters out there right now.

December, you’ve been mighty nice…and all together too fast.  Temps have finally dropped and coats are finally acceptable attire.  (hands raised to the heavens!)  This cocoon coat by Emerson Fry is the perfect weight for a California winter.   Shop this entire look below:

Can you believe Christmas is on Friday!!!?  I got 90% of my shopping done early online this year and was quite proud of myself.  But the last 10%, in true fashion, I procrastinated on and am now forced to brave the mall tomorrow! Wish me luck ;)

Lace Top  / Boyfriend Jeans / Ankle wrap heels

A pretty white blouse can go a long way.  When I found this scalloped lace top from Anthropologie, I knew it would be one of those pieces I would wear a ton, in a million different ways.  (Plus, I am a sucker for a peplum shape!)  In all honestly, there’s not a whole lot of opportunity for me to dress up.  So I am typically dressing down my “fancier” pieces for more of a laid back look.  I love the combo of destroyed denim paired with a clean white blouse.  Here are a few of my current favorites when it comes to white tops and destroyed denim:

Button Down Tunic Dress // Goddess Necklace & Festival Bangles by Musana / Diet – X Bag

I love it when I come across companies that are creating fashion for good.  Musana is one of those companies.  They create a line of beautiful jewelry, handmade by female artisans in Lugazi, Uganda.  Their model is to empower women to provide opportunities for their children, creating a generation of change.  For most of these women, this is the first time they’ve received a steady salary.  The financial stability of employment allows these artisans to provide their children with a stable home, nutritious food, medical care and an education.  And not only are these women given a job, they are also given the opportunity to take English, business, health and various other classes hosted at the Musana workshop throughout the week.  All this to say, Musana is really making a difference.  How amazing to know that something you purchase is impacting women and their families in such a profound way!

I am wearing the Goddess Necklace and Festival Bangles from their new Fall collection.  And today, Musana is generously giving away this same set to one lucky reader!  To enter , simply follow the prompts below!  A winner will be chosen on Friday the 23rd.  Good luck!
